On September 20th, UNESCO will launch the UNESCO Framework for Enabling Intercultural Dialogue and accompanying global report, We Need to Talk: Measuring Intercultural Dialogue for Peace and Inclusion. Everyone is invited to register and attend.

Featuring a ministerial roundtable and expert panel, this global launch will highlight the initial findings of the new Framework, which tell an important story of the connection of Intercultural Dialogue has to peace building, development, and security. The event will feature real world applications and success stories of Intercultural Dialogue from the viewpoints of a variety of stakeholders.

Intercultural Dialogue, transformative communication between different people based in respect, empathy, and openness, can enable us to leverage the power of our diversity and address global challenges.

Recognizing the potential of Intercultural Dialogue, UNESCO, in partnership with the Institute for Economics and Peace, has developed the data led UNESCO Framework for Enabling Intercultural Dialogue to support Intercultural Dialogue as a tool for conflict prevention, sustainable peace and human rights

Learning how to live together in a world of increasing diversity has emerged as one of the pressing challenges of our time. As our world becomes increasingly interconnected, we must develop innovative approaches to harness the power of our diversity and tackle global challenges such as inequality, divisive political discourses, discrimination and intolerance, internal displacement, and violent extremism.

Intercultural Dialogue has the potential to help us tackle these global challenges. Through data and improved knowledge as provided by the new Framework, we can leverage the power of Intercultural Dialogue.
